You freeze Rawhide as you are about to release Fedora n+1, at the
point you freeze, applications are roughly at the same version levels
as those in Fedora n. You make some updates to Fedora n in response to
bugs or security issues, but you don't want to prejudice your Fedora
n+1 testing cycle, so you queue the same updates for *after* Fedora
n+1 releases.

Someone then runs pre-upgrade from Fedora n to Fedora n+1, at which
point any package in Fedora n which is newer than the package of the
same name in Fedora n+1 is not replaced - so you end up with a small
number of packages from "Fedora n - Updates" in your Fedora n+1

I'm pretty sure I explained this better before, but I've made it
generic so the same explanation will apply for a F10-11 preupgrade as
an F11-12 preupgrade ;o)
